Israel made a proposal to Lebanon offering a resolution of a long-standing border dispute between the two countries, according to Lebanon’s Speaker Nabih Berri in a report published by Hezbollah’s Al-Manar news service.

The proposal covers onshore and offshore territory.

Total, Eni and Novatek hold a licence to explore Lebanon’s Block 9, part of which crosses the disputed area.

Israel’s proposal was delivered to Lebanon by a US delegation last week, said Berri.
